$300 for Tailor made is a good deal. Tag looks like a Prada-period Sander suit.

I've had many Jil suits and loved them. That's a good price if you like the aesthetic (not particularly slim, but sort of long and "boxy" slim). Sleeves will probably be quite long, and will have workable buttonholes, so adjusting them will require more effort than other suits.

But, the suit was perhaps $2000 retail, so even if it required $150 in alterations, $450 is a good deal.

To identify the specific season would require the sales tags; the inside tag won't identify it. If you have those, or if the seller does, posting them I can tell you the season (or, if you use the search function, you can see where I gave the "goods" to identify Jil seasons)

looks something like this ?

Overall, yes. The classic Jil tailormade has been produced since the late 1990's, with little alteration. Very high armholes, little waist suppression, relatively narrow shoulders, LONG sleeves.

Though, under Raf's tenure, it became slightly larger in silhouette. In any case, a nice suit and a deal at $300. I'd probably pay $500 or so for a good, classic color/fabric, unused Jil tailormade that was in my size.

Did that pic come from the seller? if so, he's an SF member, and a good one (at that).

This is actually my suit which he didn't end up buying and is available for sale or trade if anyone is interested.

hey ryan24, it;s been some time since the last post.  Do you still have the Jil Sander suit and looking to sell it?  Can you list the arm length?

 

Thank you.
